Examination of 98 gold skink, Eumeces schneiderii Daudin, 1802 from Alexandria and Marsa-matroh Governorates, Egypt revealed oocysts of Choleoeimeria baltrocki (Daszak et Ball, 1991) n. comb. in the gall bladder and faeces. The prevalence of the infection was 40.8%. Sporulated oocysts were found in the faeces and the gall bladder contents. Sporulated oocysts were tetrasporocystic, cylindrical, reaching a mean of 38.7 (36–42) × 19.9 (17–25) μm with bilayered smooth and colourless wall. The… 

Figures from this paper

Choleoeimeria salaselensis sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gall bladder of the horned viper Cerastes gasperettii (Serpentes: Viperidae) in Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
It is believed that this coccidium from the gall bladder of 10 horned vipers is best classified as a member of Choleoeimeria Paperna et Landsberg, 1989, because of its diagnostic features, sporocysts with a suture and composed of two plates and endogenous development limited to the biliary epithelium.
A new species of Choleoeimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the lizard, Scincus hemprichii (Sauria: Scincidae).
TLDR
Four out of twenty (20%) specimens of the lizard Scincus hemprichii Wiegmann, collected in Saudi Arabia were infected with a previously undescribed species of Choleoeimeria, causing infected cells to be displaced from the epithelium layer towards lumen.
Choleoeimeriaghaffari n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the gallbladder of Eryx jayakari Boulenger (Serpentes: Boidae) in Saudi Arabia
TLDR
Based on oöcyst morphology and the site of endogenous development (epithelium of the gallbladder and bile ducts) the new eimeriid coccidian was placed in the genus Choleoeimeria Paperna & Landsberg, 1989.
Redescription of Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 as Choleoeimeria zarudnyi n. comb. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
TLDR
Based on the morphological features of the exogenous stages and the endogenous development of the present parasite, its generic affiliation is revised and Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 is transferred to the genus Choleoeimeria.
Redescription and new locality record of Choleoeimeria turcicus from the gallbladder of Hemidactylus turcicus in Egypt, with notes on its endogenous development
TLDR
The gallbladder was the sole site for the endogenous development and no endogenous stages were noticed in the intestine in the present study, and the biliary coccidium recorded in this study represents a new locality record for C. turcicus, which was previously known in the USA and Israel.
Choleoeimeria bunopusi sp. n. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) Infecting the Gall Bladder of the Tuberculated Gecko Bunopus tuberculatus (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from Saudi Arabia
Choleoeimeria bunopusi sp. n. is described from the gall bladder of the tuberculated gecko Bunopus tuberculatus in Saudi Arabia. The prevalence of infection was 13.3% (2/15). Oocysts were ellipsoidal
A New Choleoeimeria Species (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) Infecting the Gall Bladder of Scincus mitranus (Reptilia: Scincidae) In Saudi Arabia
Abstract Choleoeimeria mitranusensis n. sp. is described from the gall bladder of the lizard Scincus mitranus in Saudi Arabia. The prevalence of the infection was 20% (6/30). Oocysts were ellipsoidal
The Coccidia (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) of Legless Lizards (Squamata: Lacertoidea: Amphisbaenia) of the World
TLDR
Information is summarized on the 8 species of coccidia reported from legless lizards of the world and it is speculated that another 380 intestinal coccidi infecting this unique reptilian lineage wait to be discovered.
Full Mitochondrial Genome and Nuclear 18S rDNA Sequences Refine the Taxonomic Placement of Choleoeimeria taggarti n. comb. from the Prostate of Antechinus flavipes (Yellow-Footed Antechinus).
TLDR
Based on phylogenetic analyses and histological observations, the generic reclassification of E. taggarti is proposed to be reclassified to Choleoeimeria Taggarti n.
